#15- Visual PAIN Diary- July through December 2016- NO PROFESSIONAL CARE More Problems

Rhapsodie’s PAIN Diary continues from beyond the last post- #14- Visual PAIN Diary- August 2014 to Summer 2016 INACCURATE Records SUFFEREDThis wasn’t nice, but it was easier than suffering more shitty assessments, but the original shoulder brace shifted something else in my lower left arm. Some may find that their PAIN Diary progression may just have the pain minimizing and totally dropping away as injuries heal progressively.  This is what is normally anticipated with healing, and I’ve had multiple switch change pain placements that demonstrate this has been happening with me also.

BUT my lower left arm has NEVER been cared for appropriately by doctors.

July to August 2016

Problems from the lack of care, INACCURATE PAIN ASSESSMENT CORRESPONDENCE, incomplete and falsified records have extended to other body parts as well as my dignity, work ability, my family care with me and other doctor’s care of me. My left rotator cuff was knocked out of place in July 2016.  The drop in my shoulder was suffered with for months until August 28th when it was shifted back into position at home.

Then after my demand to go to emergency my need for proper shoulder care had me making my pain estimates what I assumed other people would say in the same situation.

September through December 2016

And my request at emergency got me a shoulder & lower arm brace that was used for 3 days at the start of September 2016, until I determined a more comfortable method because my lower Left arm suffered from wearing the cuff.

The MRI did display 3 injuries on that shoulder, but my high pain tolerance had me living for over 1.5 months with my shoulder dropped 1 to 2 inches below its natural location in the shoulder socket.  The accidental blanket re-shifting of my shoulder back into normal placement that happened on August 28th, 2016 was followed by:

  • August 28th visit to the Emergency Room.
  • 1 visit on September 3rd to a specialist- that prescribed a visit to get an MRI & a visit to a Rotator Cuff surgeon/specialist.
  • October 14, 2016 MRI.
  • Visit to another specialist was never handled by the office of the September 3rd visit; I set up my own, with another specialist visit on March 8th, 2017.
  • Followed by a, March 16th, visit to another surgeon/specialist for examination of my Rotator Cuff MRI.
  • This has been followed by his prescription to go for physical therapy at 8 visits, one of which cost $300. AND
  • Another visit scheduled with that specialist to review how progressive the physical therapy has been later this month.

This means I would have done better totally avoiding the doctors and doing an online search for rotator cuff care & rotator cuff exercises.

It definitely would have been cheaper AND much more progressively beneficial.  This has also been proven with the shoulder bracing. This shoulder brace, provided to me at the emergency room assisted in holding the shoulder in place, but it didn’t feel healthy.

There are multiple problems I associate with the lack of use of muscles of the arm, but the shoulder still needed to be braced because it had spent over 6 weeks out of position.  Above my wrist but below my scar some lighting bites of pain happen more and more progressively with the use of the hospital brace.

My 1st visit to a specialist confirmed that there was real injury to my shoulder.  And his prescription for another brace that was more comfortable was given to me.

My husband took me to a local pharmacy that had multiple brace types in stock.  With examining the package as well as other braces on the internet the cost of the internet brace was significantly less.  My husband purchased one of the online braces for me, BUT use of it also caused problems with my lower arm. The pressure of the brace along my arm felt like my bone was soft not stiff in the arm brace.

Another item had been used by me while waiting for the brace that I found good.

My Rotator Cuff Stuffy as shown in the picture here, held by my shoulder, allowed the rest of my body more comfort and freedom, but still braced my shoulder as you can see in comparing the pictures.

Many types of braces are available, the medical industry may not like this, but My Rotator Cuff Stuffy is not tactically bad other than the fact it was created as a stuffed animal and thus I restuffed it about a month ago for better comfort.  Its shape & size allows my underarm to be braced up and locked in place while the rear spread feet keep and raised head allow my body to hold it in place.   I have worn it under a coat, over flannel shirts, bathrobes, and against bare skin and t-shirts.

While my lower left arm has been protected there is more rawness, and I’ve felt the placement of the plate vary.  Now instead of along the scar where there was bone numbness when I touch the outside of my arm, it’s now below my arm and more towards my hand than my elbow.

The pain splitting AND swelling that resulted from the shoulder bracing demonstrated to me that also the injuries of my left calf were splintering as I feel towards my knee and towards my ankle.  With use my left arm is splintering towards my wrist.  This is not normal but maybe people with dense bones are more likely to have this happen because of the greater bone resistance to splitting breaks which separate bone parts completely…

#14- Visual PAIN Diary- August 2014 to Summer 2016 INACCURATE Records SUFFERED

So ended the previous post- #13- Visual PAIN Diary- July 2014- Painful Pokey Boney Walk The amount on a pain scale was about a 6 with my arm down, but with the arm up against my chest it was only depleted with shoving the Pokey Boney back into place behind the plate.  It didn’t go back onto the bone, but at least it wasn’t sticking out any more.

August & Fall 2014- Frictional Discomfort

There were months while I rubbed at a very tiny protuberance that  shifted and rubbed behind the plate that hid the bone from my fingers.  Sometimes a boney section pecked out from between my solid bone area and the plate that remained as a fracture support.  My arm continued to suffer shifting and rubbing feelings of pain, until I finally pressed it down to a more comfortable location multiple months later.

But the bruising on my arm was continually being felt.  In fact to this day I can touch the exact locations I rubbed and shifted against for months, seeking comfort with my Left Forearm, as are pictured here:

But multiple inaccurate reports used by doctors & medical technologists have caused them to fake in the estimates while not doing proper examining.

The ONLY accepted official report about my 2005 surgery was the false one stuffed in my files.  The X-rays of that arm show glass or gravel, like the plate was to be seen as, but NO CARE HAS BEEN GIVEN, because it has been the patient’s word against the doctor’s inaccurate testimony.

How can we as patient’s continue to accept these inaccuracies AND live by them when we have the exact opposite actually happening to us.  Well we human’s do like to be dumb and ignorant when it is too much work to fight for truth and right.  Isn’t that why Hitler was so successful with the persecution camps?

The Infrequent & continual rubbing of my lower arm resulted in getting the bruised deepening area feeling on the bone,  but there was ALWAYS another item keeping my fingers separated from the bone.

  • Wouldn’t a removed plate on my left arm have allowed me to feel the touch of my fingers against the bone?
    • For many years there have areas of my lower left arm that do not feel the pressure of my fingers, since 2000, and it still continues.

Presently I feel body areas under my right hand and fingers on my left arm, but my left arm does not feel the same fingers any deeper than the skin, no matter how deep I push against the painful areas of my Left Lower arm.  The pressure push feels like pushing into a deep raw bruise.


Since Then

There were many interstitial circumstances, at least from my living time, varying things between September 2014 and the Summer of 2016, but most were minor enough to not be specifically remembered.

But during the Winter and Spring of 2016 I had

  • trouble with my right shoulder, causing me to use my LEFT Forearm a lot more than over the previous 2 years.
  • My left shoulder was definitely weakened because of not being exercised properly because a leaning function in our narrow hall, 23 inches wide OR less with sliding door only partially open, in
  • July 2016, caused me to dislocate my Left Shoulder ROTATOR CUFF in more than 3 areas.

This was proven after it was brought back into position August 28th, the MRI results done in October 2016 showed there was more than one area of injury which I’m still getting care for.  The only way I was taken seriously by the doctor was my lie about the so called level of pain I was feeling, since it was disruptive AND no care for deeper injuries was ever received.

This wasn’t nice, but it was easier than suffering more shitty assessments, but the original shoulder brace shifted something else in my lower left arm…

#13- Visual PAIN Diary- July 2014- Painful Pokey Boney Walk

As was shared with the previous post- #12- Visual PAIN Diary- June 2014- Father’s Day Weekend after the work to repair my leg you would think that if there were other injuries with my arm, I could also work them into repair.  But there is a great factor hindering me, it is the plate that still exists in my arm.  If that plate was gone, I could have put the bone fully back in position just as I originally did with my lower left leg.

From the visuals a person who is trying to understand the pain another is feeling can also relate better with the situations that led to actions based on feelings that may not necessarily be understandable without the visual connections. I’m not talking about pain alone, but how different aspects of nature can vary the actions of the person who took actions that are not understood fully by others.

Please remember that I have to make visualizations because there were no photos taken previous to suffering the many problems that resulting from real injuries AND multiple doctoral inaccurate assessments that are causing pain.  At times PAIN that has been severe enough to cause me to get nauseous or weak AND to become more and more incapacitated with doctor’s not making assessments properly because of their inaccurate basis of PAIN assessments.

The July 2014 Pokey Boney Walk

On an excursion to from the mailbox in July of 2014, the extent of the Father’s Day Weekend Fall of JUNE 2014 was demonstrated. Pulling the mail out of the box with my right hand was done, and it was passed into my left, but something popped.  It wasn’t too bad that instant, but the joggling mail envelops made things worse.

(A) Natural Walking Arm Angle

I felt like a raw scab was being ripped inside my left arm, and with a single inaccurate step I almost passed out.

The PAIN was on the lower side of my arm. The pressure on the skin shifted as I moved my arm, eventually though clumsily my right hand located a slight protuberance poking away from my left arm.  For all who have never scraped themselves and crawled on the injury, the pressure pain, from the arm with the protruding bone resting against the skin below, felt like having a raw scrape that was cared for land repeatedly on gravel against the exact same location.

(B) Raised View of LEFT Forearm

Raising my arm, caused the ache to intensify against the skin, but it minimized the scraping scratching raw pain of shifting bone weight. My right hand couldn’t really find the problem after my arm was lifted at a certain angle, but there was an angle of touch that was sickening.  The closest place was over 100 yards away from where I was standing, I HAD TO DO SOMETHING!

Shifting the mail, and trying to rub the pain away, was not helping things were getting worse.  I needed to see the problem, so capturing the mail against my chest with my partially raised LEFT arm allowed me to work on getting rid of more pain.  Working to view the situation took some effort.

My view of the painful area was not easy to see from my natural viewpoint as shown in this mirror image here. The red mark on the sketch is approximately the location of where Pokey Boney was located on my Left Forearm.

(C ) Pokey Boney Injury Sketch

With my arm across my lower breast there was nothing to see, I had to shift my wrist down while raising my shoulder up to get the bone to act like it did with my arm down.

OUCH!

Finally I saw the issue, though I felt a lot in the meantime. I do not have an accurate view to share with you, so this picture has been sketched with an oversized  Pokey Boney addition.

Please remember that the bone was trying to poke out of my skin, I was alone in the yard, the house was so far away, I had to do something.  Shaking my head to keep me from  stumbling into the darkening or collapsing from pain, I shoved my Pokey Boney down away from the skin, but NOT back into place.

The amount on a pain scale was about a 6 with my arm down, but with the arm up against my chest it was only depleted with shoving the Pokey Boney back into place behind the plate.  It didn’t go back onto the bone, but at least it wasn’t sticking out any more…

#11- Visual PAIN Diary- 2013 Stressed Injury

Continuing from post- #10- A PAIN & Injury Diary MAY Change Inaccurate Doctoral ASSESSMENTS- Maybe the pain & injury diary can grow value in pain assessments as well as more accurate treatments. Like

  • what if the doctors had a visual flip-book relating the pain as well as the injury progressing as I have suffered?
  • what if the medical community had made assessments accurately for me instead of basing things on their own personal ratings of my pain estimates?…

September 2013

2013 Forearm Brace against fall pressure collapse ache that varied from the fall and diminished in generally over months.

  • I had passed out for over 30 minutes.
  • The work done in the previous years of college with jobs as well as taking on the care of grades didn’t happen.
  • I was exhausted all of the time.
    • For the time after that fall, I remained in college until graduation taking a full course load, but not doing the extra work previously practiced during my college time.
    • The injurious fall that caused the faint was from my right calf, a multiple fracture was displayed on the one X-ray of June 10th, 2014.
    • The X-ray was left unexamined by all my doctors.
  • My one viewing of the 6-10-2014 right calf X-ray showed a dancer’s fracture of the inner back Tibia, but as the hospital ‘lost’ the picture I have not received any treatment.
  • Antibiotics were being used by me early in June 2014, the pain went away for a time.  An itchy calf had me rubbing it, and I pushed in part of the unhealed calf fracture.

And this is only part of my calf story, further mishaps are causing more problems, but there are only mentions with this section, because we are sharing a Visual PAIN Timeline for the LEFT FOREARM.

But please be aware there are multiple associated accounts because of the weaknesses growing from a lack of a care as well as the need for proper treatments…

#09- Detailing Diaries Could Limit Inaccurate PAIN Assessments

Continued from #08- Inaccurate PAIN Assessments MADE a BIT Better– Because of my pain WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN CHRONIC, shifting and changing based on actions and bone shifting having different time ratings to add the colors to the pictures is useful.  But there is more like the detailing that for me is necessary because there is no reference when doctors only see you every 6 months or when there is a specific problem THAT THEY HAVE RECOGNIZED.

WE AS PATIENTS, who have NOT received proper injury treatment, NEED TO KEEP Visual DIARIES, so that doctors can view the progression of pain at least with coloring in pain variables and area changes.

Like for me which pain has never been consistent, it always comes from actions that have increased problems and actions that have effected previous areas where pain was in the past but had been gone for a long while.  That is a reason that detailing visuals can really assist others, like doctors OR other healthcare OR physical therapy people, realize what issues you, a patient, is trying to share with them.

Detailing Visuals

Visual descriptions may be generified, but people with problems may also need more details.  If I had taken photos or sketches of my arm, with the problems showing, even only the pain charted I could have drawn or colored in the pain variables over time as well as the location shifts so that the doctor’s assessments could be more accurate.

The medical society could do this work also, but in my experience they haven’t done so yet.

Rhapsodie’s Visually Detailing Pain & Variations

My left forearm pain has grown with problems over time, just with using enlarged clips of the pictures from the National Institute Of Pain with added detailing as remembered over time more details of understanding could be seen.

Let me show you my recent work with detailing some of the advancing stages of arm problems based only on my memories from 2014 up to now with the newer problems that grow on my left forearm.

As previously mentioned, the injury to my lower left arm was originally fractured in a car accident. This sketch was pieced with the picture shared by the book and my information added.

AND during the summer of 2014 after taking a twisting fall in 2013 where my weak arm suffered some.  THEN there was another fall around Father’s Day 2014 that dramatically increased my problmes.  This was demonstrated later, in July of 2014 as I was carrying some envelopes of mail up from the mailbox and a piece of bone popped up out of the bone on my left arm.  Instead of taking a picture with my camera, I stood in the yard and pushed the bone down away from the skin.

NO VISUAL EVIDENCE was left for the doctors that they took time to examine or see, AND no one has even gathered accurate assessments of that arm because  the 2005 screw removal surgery report was falsified.

BUT maybe if I had previously added the visuals into a timeline of events incorporating any personal pain feelings the doctors’ would accord more serious attention to the injury now. I have not done things that way because of my ignorance of how the doctors misdiagnose based on limited information.  Previously my diabetes was appropriately diagnosed when I was 5, because the Hemoglobin A1C taken from my blood placed my blood sugar levels as being way outside normal, and my parents were witnesses to how sick I was and the amount of time I lived sickly.

The bone injury assessments aren’t as easy for the doctors to see after time continues to pass. BUT let me demonstrate how the detailing could add value to visual assessments by medical professionals…

‘Heaven is for Real’ influences & YOU- #7 of 7

‘More, well what more could you be talking about?’

The time as a door greeter at Walmart led to many conversations, that I think helped contribute to movies that have been produced. The movie Noah,’ ‘Tangled,’ and ‘Heaven is for Real’ are the last three, I think, I influenced.

In fact the woman that mentioned the boy came back to the store with the young man and his mother and I asked him questions, he gave me some vague responses.  And his mother mentioned that he had been drugged quite a bit during the surgery, so the family is not sure the recollections are correct.

But the faith of this one young man and his family have inspired a deeper look at the heavens by our world.

Another Godly view.

Another Godly view.

The young man I met was about 8 years old, and that is a little older than the young man described from the book in the movie. Later the pastor who is mentioned as writing the book and I had a conversation.

After informing me that he was just the pastor the young man had requested to share the story he commented on thoughts about the story for the book, and asked me, “Do you think it will be wrong to lie to people about his age?”

In response, to this pastor a customer “who is always right was,” I investigated with, “What do you think?!”

“I’m the minister and guide for my people, but I’m writing this story with the idea that it will become popular. With popularity problems can result!,” was the emphatic response.

His comment caused me to feel that he genuinely cared about this young man and his family. That he was showing fatherly love and consideration, when he was considering age and with this inquiry about age to me.

In response I said, “That’s good to think about, it’s wrong to lie, but it’s also wrong to harm others.  When a general thing like age, is being considered in this situation, harm and cost should also be thought about.  Who may be harmed with this lie?  Who can be harmed without this lie? If you tell the truth, will life be good for this young person in school and for life? Will his family suffer harm after people hear this personal experience? After the story becomes popular, will he be able to keep on learning, or will he be hassled because of his personal experiences? Could it even be better to alter his name, in the book, to protect him from undesirable attention? What is the more loving thing to do?”

“You’re right, I didn’t think of all that,” was his considering response.

“Did this help you make a decision?”

After motioning to the young man he said, “. . . We’ll have to talk this over.”

And I was left to continue sharing with my customers while their conversation took place at a slight distance from me. When they were done the pastor returned and told me of their decision.  Which I’m not sharing here. Because presently the work of this young man, his pastor, his family and other God loving people has brought about more results. The world has available the movie ‘Heaven is for Real’to watch in theaters.

This story should lead others to continue contemplating, looking and reading because a lot can be hidden in the pages of a book.  In fact, I desire everyone to take on the reading of a fictionalized presentation of The Chronicles of Heaven’s War an epic beginning with Sisters of the Bloodwind, because this story has inspired me to share more love with the world.

Your own views are yours and telling you what to think is not my desire, but causing you to think and then act on those thoughts, because they hit your heart through thoughts in your head, is my desire.

Read and see if this doesn’t inspire thee!!!

‘Heaven is for Real’ the new movie- #5 of 7

Jesus in heaven ‘a blond?’

Well that is the description shared in ‘Heaven is for Real’the movie released April 16, 2014. According to radio commentators and personal research on the internet Jesus is not only blond in heaven, but Jesus also has blue green eyes.

Those commenting, on that fact, seemed very surprised, but I’m not.

Why?

Because with my reading of Sisters of the Bloodwindby author Ava D. Dohn and the talking done with customers at Walmart in Hornell, NY as a door greeter, from 2008 till 2010, causes me to think that I helped inspire that picture. The conversations shared in previous posts under this theme continued.

My desire to draw people toward loving God caused me to talk to ones who demonstrated not only a willingness to listen, but also desired to gain more knowledge and insight.

Double rainbow evening

In fact during one conversation about, my view of, the reality of the heavens a man or woman commented, please forgive me for not remembering which, “What do you want to do to help people love God more?”

In responding motion for our present was defined, at least that’s what I believe, “Well, I think films/movies get more response than books do in our present technological age, and because of that the story I’ve read inspires me, others should read it to so they’ll have a reason to fall in love with the people in the heavens. But I think films are a way to get people interested in the book. Because books always hold more details so even the best of films only work as advertisement for the books. But most people don’t read books so a film could inspire more reading.”

“Why do you say that?”

“Because there are hundreds or thousands of people leaving this store with DVD’s each week versus the hundred or so with books. Now that’s just my perception [found with being a door greeter, cashier, book reader, and electronics associate], but take a look at the size of our book section in this store! Then compare that to the size of the DVD section in electronics. They are both entertainment, but people go into electronics and spend money on movies that they just don’t spend on books.”

When that comment was made a brand new hardcover at Walmart was about $17.99 in price versus a new release DVD without extras for $21.99. And in the Hornell, NY store at that time there was about 28 linear feet of shelving for all books, while there was between 144 and 160 feet of linear shelf space for DVD’s.

My customer questioned me with words similar to those here, “What type of story do you think will inspire people to search further for the heavens?”

After pausing to think for a moment, I responded, “A real life story, one that would be believed because the teller was young or a religious minister. It should be real, it should be truthful, but it should also be a vision of heaven.”

“A vision of heaven?”

After some slight consideration, my response was, “I think I may have when I was young, but I’m too old for someone to think I’m not crazy . . .”

That train of speech was interrupted by a woman with the comment, “I heard about a boy who had an experience.”

Asking her about what she knew caused her to say, “I’m not sure; I’ll have to ask him.”

The woman’s comment may have inspired more movie plans in the mind of my conversationalist because there was more interaction between us, in following talks, but it was centered more and more on bringing the reality of the heavens to people through film.

The movie ‘Heaven is for Real’ is told as a true story, I haven’t watched it yet, but I’m thinking Jesus is female in that movie. So not only golden blond, with blue-green eyes, but also female is my conjecture about Jesus as shared in that movie presently.

I’ll see it eventually, for me it would be sad to me if the movie doesn’t share the reality of my discussions because of fear of standards defined by man.
